Join us to try out lessons and activities that will bring stories and economic concepts to life for your students. All lessons are aligned to national standards, and you can earn up to six hours of CPDU credit per workshop.

June 4: Pre-K through second grade

Learn about activities that incorporate literature, math and economics into your classes.

Topics include:

  • The decision-making process
  • What scarcity is and how it plays a role in our lives every day
  • Putting math skills to use in real life applications
  • Personal financial literacy

It is never too early to teach students the fundamentals of becoming better decision-makers and to help them realize that economics is a part of everything we do. Even the smallest of learners can learn how to be sure they are big earners.

Registration is required by May 28.
